We have to get comfortable with being uncomfortable, says HeatherAsh Amara, author of Warrior Goddess Training and Awaken Your Inner Fire. We must learn to advocate for ourselves, rather than constantly comparing ourselves to who we think we’re supposed to be — and finding ourselves coming up short. The warrior goddess blends two important energies — the warrior, which is about total focus, clarity, and commitment, and the goddess, which is about opening, bigness, creativity, receptivity, and joy. Each woman can find her own unique blend. It can be messy at times, but we must let go of the old shells of who we’ve been so we can find out who we are.
HeatherAsh Amara has studied and taught extensively with don Miguel Ruiz and continues to teach with the Ruiz family. She brings an openhearted, inclusive worldview to her writings and teachings, which are a rich blend of Toltec wisdom, European shamanism, Buddhism, and Native American ceremony.
